"A picture is worth a thousand words" is classic saying that shows that pictures can express emotions, thoughts, any many more things that are equal to those of words(can be interpreted in many ways, but this is what I think). For me photography is a way to capture a moment that I found enjoyable or simply wanting to keep for ever. so when I heard about a manga with romance and photography as the base for it, i just had to read it.
Art- 9 (thought I'd start with this since I think its the best part)
Now for this i gave it a high score because when oji takes the photo of the girls the artist made them take such nice poses. I mean talk about great, for every girl he takes the picture he sets the mood for them perfectly. he gets them going and makes them feel embarrassed and quite a lot of other emotions which adds the pictures. when i first saw the photos of them my first thought other than man this guys a pervert, where wow this guy can really capture theses girls quite well even up to expert level. For a certain picture he describes it as a mother panther protecting her young ready to pounce, and before i read that part i was thinking the exact same thing(more or less). as for the girls they where drawn well and quite good on the eyes, but its your typical shonen art. and for the scenery and all that other good stuff those where done quite exceptionally as well. the art has got to be my most favorite thing about the manga very well done.
well the cast isn't really unique that much you got your main guy oji, guy wants to get better at one thing and your childhood friend that has a crush on him but is really tsundere like about it and of course hes oblivious to the fact that she likes him. there's also the club pres who is hot! just like to through that out there. Though I would like to add that oji, gets in boss mode before he takes a picture and gets all epic and "handsome" and become a god like being that can seduce any girl he wants and can make them fall to his whim and do whatever he wants them to do. i found that to be quite funny. as for the other girls there your typical cast though i'd like to add that you get your variety of women in this story so for you guys and gals that have a preference to a certain characters you'll get them here.
this was not that great to tell you the truth. I mean the premise is nice but after a while it gets quite repetitive and your like, "yeah shes hot, but when is it actually going to progress..." that's what i got out of it at least. I mean don't get me wrong the foundation for this to be a great story is there but it seems to be pushed in the back burner for now. maybe because its not over yet that i think this way but for now its not that great.
Though the story is not that good, i still enjoyed it very much, i mean some of those shoots where just erotically awesome. i mean i'm a huge fan of ecchi and if a story has got that you can definitely catch me reading or watching that for the sole purpose of that.(problem? :P) the comedy will make you laugh, i found myself laughing pretty hard at times. and i got to say the club president is probably one of the most seductive people you will ever see, well at least shes tops the charts for me. i was thoroughly enjoyed glued to this manga, not having to take breaks to see what was on TV or taking my mid read naps like some other stories.
overall- 7 for now maybe a 8 later...
this is a great story to take a break and just enjoy some ecchi girls making sexy yet beautiful poses. you will not be disappointed if your an ecchi enthusiast. but if your looking for a beautiful romance story where you'll cry at the time when the heroine and hero get to together at the end you'll be sadly disappointed. but i will definitively recommend this, so go ahead give it a shot you just might enjoy it. thanks and have a wonderful day or night.

Nozoki Ana or a peeping hole is one of those stories that are borderline hentai. so if your not of super ecchi manga this might not be to your liking. but this ones a good one with an actual story and with plenty of beautiful women to fit your liking.
*This might be somewhat of a spoiler but if your read like the first 1-4 chapters you'll pretty much get the same.*
"curiosity killed the cat" could pretty much summaries the basic plot of the story. we get one of our mains who moves away from his hometown to start a new life, not much of a surprise there. but his new apartment has one thing that's strange, a hole in the wall. he looks into the hole with his friend and sees nothing. but to his curiosity he returns to it for a second helping. To his surprise he finds his neighbor doing what normal people do, sitting down reading a book...no wait ,no she's not she's masturbating! he can't believe his eye, she eventually catches him peeping on her and he freaks out and stops. so what would a normal person do? they would go next door and apologize. He goes next door, keep in mind he does not know anything about his neighbor or what kind of reaction shes going to have to his voyeurous act. the neighbor opens the door and to his surprise this beautiful young women opens the door. he attempt to say he's sorry and but she tries to shut the door before he could say anything. he stops he and falls on her and ends up in a classic ecchi situation. but now this seemingly shy innocent women takes a picture of this and forms a contract with our main, a peeping one. and so the normal life he wanted ends up leaving him. and his new "interesting" life begins. so now kido (our main) will have to do lovely things in order to please emiru(other main) and will find out things about himself that he didn't know.
this is actually one of my favorite manga's, do to the art. the eyes i got to say are some of the best drawn that I've seen so far, very erotic :P. facial expression are drawn well and all the women have "nice bodies" and the h scenes are well drawn and well done. the girl's on the other hand look kinda similar to me other than the hair change. the background art is also very nice. but other than that good art overall.
there's basically only two main characters and a whole lot of supporting characters. lets start of with one of my favorite characters of all time Ikuno, Emiru. She is not like most of the girls you read about she is actually pretty perverted and makes kido do certain stuff to make her "happy." but most of the time you can really see the love she has for kido in the situation that both of them get in. Then there's Tatsuhiko, Kido our other main character. hes your typical harem lead. he gets in a lot of ecchi situations. and all the girls love him. But he's actually a decent guy...well sometimes. and last but not least this is a harem after all ill talk about the ladies. this mangas got quite a few women that fall into our mains lap from the childhood friend, to the hot girl in class, to a model. so you get loads of women, though i wouldn't really consider these encounters love... i will also like to add that once there time is through they disappear of the face of the world, i don't know why but that's how it is.
i thoroughly enjoyed this manga pretty much the whole time i was reading it. This story is actually done pretty well compared to some other heavy ecchi mangas. If its not some of the steamy h-scenes its the twist and turns of the story. Some of the drama scenes are actually done well and when things go bad you actually feel bad for the characters.
Usually when you think of this kind of story you think about some old guy staring at young girls and you think gross. But this time it's a girl who starts it and one that you would never think would do such a thing. you get a nice romance story that has a unique style. Nozoki Ana is a definite pick up if you want something new that's not like most other stories.
yes this is my first review by the way. so criticism would be nice.
